Elevator Ridership

Employees should do their best to ensure that no more than one individual or family group rides the elevator at a time and while in the elevator, individuals should maintain a safe space of at least 6 feet. If the size of the elevator does not allow for this, individuals should ride alone. When boarding an elevator car, be sure to let the individuals in the car exit first — not only is this courteous, but reduces the likelihood of contact (such as, bumping into or brushing up against one another) and helps to maintain social distance. Buttons should be pressed using the knuckle, elbow, an unused tissue, or pen with the ink filament removed.
